Jazz Master Barron told the NEA that he loves "to grab a handful of notes out of thin air and make something out of it, to make a statement, to tell a story, . . . project an emotion, and to be able to reach out to somebody." He's been doing so ever since his time with James Moody and Dizzy Gillespie, Yusef Lateef, Stan Getz, and Sphere; a quarter-century of teaching at Rutgers University; and now with Kiyoshi Kitigawa on bass and Johnathan Blake on drums. We hope Barron might release this Kennedy Center session as an album.

Whether throwing a well aimed rock, shooting an arrow at a bulls eye, or taking aim with a cannon at a fortress, if you want to hit your target,  it’s all about ballistics. Tonight on Inquiry we talk one again with MARK DENNY, physicist and prolific writer, about his new book THEIR ARROWS WILL DARKEN THE SKY: THE EVOLUTION AND SCIENCE OF BALLISTICS. Tonight, we talk about the earliest black powder weapons, Matchlocks, Flintlocks, cannons and cannonades and how these weapons changed how wars were fought.

Inquiry welcomes WILLIAM K. RUDOLPH Ph.D, Curator of American Art at the Milwaukee Art Museum to talk about the exhibition IN SEARCH OF JULIEN HUDSON: FREE ARTIST OF COLOR IN PRE-CIVIL WAR NEW ORLEANS. Rudolph talks about what we know and don’t know and what we assume about this fascinating American artist; Hudson’s two trips to Paris and what is was like for an artist to work in pre-Civil War New Orleans.
